These great pictures are from the first issue of Wassenaar, a new online photography magazine that I am enjoying very much! Definitely check it out if you like photography! These particular photos are by Alexander Binder, Andrés Marroquín Winkelmann, and Justin James Reed, from top to bottom. Check out Wassenaar if you want to see more!
I love this “graffiti” using moss, created by Anna Garforth and Elly Stevens. They call the project MOSSenger. I wish I could figure out how they got the moss to be on the wall in those letters like that! I can’t find any information on the project that elaborates on the process very much. Still, very cool! For more pictures and information, check out this post on Yatzer!
Design For Mankind shared a link for Peter Thuvander’s library bus, serving the streets of Sweden.
Peter designed the bus with Martin from the design collective Muungano and the graphics were done by Fredrik Forsberg at THEY GRAPHICS. The bus, of course, offers books as well as internet, computer games, a music listening station, and even a small cinema.
I wish this would roll down my street! I would definitely spend some time hanging out.
I love these photos by Matthew Carden with little people figurines depicted living and working among different foods. Carden is a commercial food photographer and married to a chef. I can’t explain the work much better than what’s on the site, so check out the description below.
“Carden sets out in his art work to make viewers more aware of what they eat and to simply think about food as an integral part of our world. His photographs juxtapose figures with seemingly colossal broccoli, macaroons, chicken wings and the like, and speak of abundance and the ultimate waste produced on a daily basis in our land of plenty. Despite looming issues, the blurry, dreamy quality of Carden’s work allows the viewer a whimsical space to enjoy the pure pleasures of food.

Don’t you just love the sun dried apricots?

The faces on these Gubble Bum packages, designed by Jesse Kirsch, are so darn cute and funny! They brightened my day a little bit, so I wanted to share them with you!
These leaves were cut so beautifully by Jen Stark! What a perfect time of year for them! I saw them on Design Dig, and decided to look up a bit more about their creator. What I found was so awesome! I love Jen Stark’s other work! It is similar to Julian Vallée‘s work in that she loves to cut and use paper, and she uses lots of bright colors! I thought it was so funny I found her today after I just was talking about Julian’s work yesterday! See some of what I’m talking about below, and even more of Jen’s work can be found on her site.
I spotted the work of artist Leah Bartholomew on Frankie Magazine’s blog, and I wish I lived in Australia so I could see it in person! She just opened a show at the Gorker Gallery. It looks so cheerful autumn beautiful. That sun really gets me in the mood to drive through the countryside on a bright fall day.
And I LOVE the poetic description from the announcement:
“Dry wheat leaves stream like ribbons in the hot wind and the sun won’t go to sleep. Harvest time is coming and there is a whole world hidden in the corn fields – a world of innocence and nostalgia, children with skin like honey and feathers in their hair hiding from the future, singing songsabout the summer and freedom.”
So I’ve been a fan of Julian Vallée‘s artwork for a while now – he is a master of working with cut and paste, and uses lots of really bright colors! When I saw this piece on Booooooom my first reaction was whoa, and then I knew I had to share it with you! I want to live in a world where that’s what it looks like when you spray paint from a can. Check out Julian’s website to see more of his work – total eye candy.
This awesome “drawing” was created by Debbie Smyth, entirely using pins and thread! It looks so cool! See more pictures and information here on Design Boom.
